With floor to ceiling responsive projections and cinematic soundscapes, visitors will be physically and emotionally immersed in Victoria’s landscapes and experience the beauty of nature on a grand scale.

Tyama is the new, multisensory and reactive digital exhibit that has taken over the Melbourne Museum, transporting visitors to Victoria’s nocturnal worlds, immersing them in 360-degree responsive projections, breathtaking effects, and exquisite soundscapes.

Pronounced “Chah-muh”, the 1000-square-metre, six-room display is an experience like no other, giving you the chance to discover senses beyond human perception alongside the animals that use them.

Through these extraordinary and visually stunning digital environments, untold stories are brought to life as you see each environment from the perspectives of the animals themselves. From chasing pheromones with moths and using sound to see like a bat, to learning from fish to sense without touch and swimming with whales to discover the songlines that connect us all, Tyama is about knowing, not just with our minds but with all our senses.

Grounded in First Peoples knowledge, Tyama – the Keerray Woorroong language verb “to know” – blends the physical and digital to create an unmissable immersive experience to reawaken your connection to the natural world.

Through Tyama, it’s all about a holistic understanding: It is about knowing, not just with our minds, but with our whole body. By listening closely with all our senses, we can embody these learnings and understand our place in the world.

Through intimate sessions no larger than 20 people, Tyama is self-guided experience for all ages and abilities that will take approximately 25 to 40 minutes.

Tyama is on now at Melbourne Museum and runs until 29 Jan 2023. Head here for more information.
